浜松城
Hamamatsu Castle is classified as a hilltop castle (its layout: Teikakushiki), and is located in Shizuoka Prefecture. During the pre-modern age, it found itself within the borders of Tōtōmi Province. It is associated with the Tokugawa clan. Dates in use: 1532 - 1871.

This castle was originally built in 1532 by a samurai of the Imagawa clan. Tokugawa Ieyasu won the castle in battle in 1568 & moved here permanently two years later. Many of his famous battles were fought using this castle as his base of operations.
